Afghanistan?

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN AFGHANISTAN?

  • Talibans took over Kabul on August 15th 2021, and are de facto ruling the country;

 

  • The only region opposing Taliban’s rule is the Panjshir, a mountainous area North of Kabul;
 
  • Since the beginning of June, over 550,000 people have been displaced;
 
  • In Kabul alone, around 20,000 people are displaced and need food, water, and shelter
 
  • Women and children, as well as their rights, are the most in danger
 
  • Displaced Afghans mostly find shelter in Pakistan and Iran, where 2 million Afghans sought asylum in 2020. These countries are to keep in radar, as they are at risk of Taliban’s raids as well;
